The perception of the Americans about the inequality is exceptional. According be a study Income Inequality: Perception and Reality. Just click on the flags to play. ;)

Another notable thing is that former East Block countries have all too grim view of their income distribution.

So it goes.

American's really only underestimated the 4th quartile. This entire study if sociological masturbation. Only a usless commie would conceive of doing such a study which was designed, no doubt, to prove how heartless Americans are.

I read just the opposite. I see Americans as more optimsitic.

BTW, the Germans are doing a good job of keeping poor people from sneaking in.

Nice post, though. Maybe find us something on how good the quality of product was at GUM deparmtent stores.

Actually I have visited a GUM in Leningrad 1973 and 1987. But I can not comment on the quality of the products there, for the simple reason there were no products available.

So it goes.

Sociology and Anthropology are infested with communist radicals and PC hysteric dirtbags. Anyone who tries to do real science in those disciplines is looking for an early career end. Pretty much anything from those two disciplines that has been published in the last 20 years is questionable at best.

I have a Ph.D. in anthropology, trust me, I know.

I don't see no hysteria in this German study. Just that Americans believe in the American dream that does not exist, while the Europeans do not believe in the European Dream that exists, kind of.

So it goes.

It seems that when the welfare state is strong, the middle class is large and the poor class not wide.

There is one exception though. ;)

Well, the perception of Americans in general is exceptional ... after all Americans are to be found in all parts of the hemisphere in which I reside. We have some people north of the Brooks range and some all the way down to Terra Del Fuego. Lots of diversity in the American Hemisphere!!! Lots of exceptional perceptions !!! Don't forget about it !! :)

Not all Americans are mathematicians ... but hopefully many of us perceive and believe that multiplying both sides of an inequality by minus one requires reversing the sense of the inequality :). We are exceptional !!!

I think your claim is not entirely accurate. With anthropology it very much varies by university. You had the bad misfortune of chasing faculty position in Amherst, a dept. that is on the far left insofar as applied/cultural goes. If you had happened to land at Stanford ten years ago, you probably would have been in the Dept of Anthropological Sciences rather than Dept of Cultural Anthropology and Sociology.

I think they fused recently at Stanford. Now there's only one dept again.

Well, certainly a physical anthropology dept is going to be less political than a department combined with 100% certifiable communists.
